Our ability to solve complex issues has been hindered by our level of education. Content injection is a negated obloquy. Art gives the viewer equal stake in the topic at hand, and instead of allowing for free communication (whether it be positive or negative by nature), art has a habit of hindering the voices of objection. In order for art to evolve, ALL lines of communication need to be kept open, and not just ones that are acceptable only to the most “open-minded” Globalist. Censorship in it’s simplest form, is ignorance.
